VICTORY V14-1, V24-1, V25-3T, V25-5T* we developed to be resistant to the predominant clubroot pathotype identified in Western Canada. However in a commercial environement there is ppotential for clubroot populations to exist or develop pathotypes to which VICTORY V14-1, V24-1, V25-3T and V25-5T* (and other clubroot-resistant canola varieties with similar resistance profiles) may be susceptible. Please follow integrated pest-management strategies to maximize the genetic resistance in canola varieties. For detailed information on these strategies visit www.clubtoot.ca.

VICTORY® Polygenic Blackleg Resistance        

When it comes to minimizing blackleg risk, it pays to choose the right canola hybrids. All of our VICTORY® hybrids come equipped with an industry-leading, polygenic blackleg resistance package and with an additional blackleg resistance gene, Rlm2, allowing you to rotate blackleg resistance within the VICTORY® lineup.


Major gene resistance protects your crops at the seedling stage, but that's not enough. Fortunately, polygenic resistance contains both major and minor genes, providing blackleg protection throughout every stage of their growth – all the way from seedling to adult plant. Even under high disease pressure, our VICTORY® Hybrids give you the highest level of yield protection and control.

KEEPING BLACKLEG UNDER CONTROL


1. ROTATE
Practice a diverse crop rotation, preferably two to three years between canola crops. 

2. SELECT
Use varieties with a Resistant (R) field rating. 

3. MANAGE
Effectively manage weeds that can be a host to the blackleg pathogen (volunteer canola, brassica weeds). 

4. SCOUT
Check your fields at harvest time and look for signs of blackleg. 

5. REACT
If you notice high levels of blackleg in your field, use a hybrid with a different resistance group next season.

6. PLAN
Consider using an early-season fungicide application.

CHECKING YOUR CROP FOR INFECTION

WHEN: The best time to check is from pod setting until swathing. The closer to swathing, the easier it is to detect.

WHAT: Look for stem lesions (a white-gray center possibly including tiny, hard, black bodies plus a dark border) and cankers at the base. Stem cankers can cause premature lodging in severe cases.

HOW: Pull up plant and clip stem just below ground level. Each stem is evaluated based on discoloration of its cross section. If there’s no discoloration, your plant is blackleg-free. Go to canolawatch.org for guides on how to judge the severity of infections. 

Visit canolawatch.org for more best practices.
